Anyone remember (?) a Kovalev incident when he dived and that Van Helmut ref or whatever his name is took allot of heat for calling something (or not calling something?), I never saw it but have heard about it after. Supposedly didn't make us popular either. Think it was in 95' against Qubeck in the PO's.

If you are Detroit or NJD you can put on a charade and still be respected in the end. If we would take that route we would loose that respect.

I rather we keep building for a while longer.
Man, you're old... I agree completely. Plus Ruff almost lost his job by barking at the league at some points of his tenure there. Renney should be careful. All of that is done for the fans i.e . not being important.
